Haye: I did everything in my power to fight Fury but he won’t sign

A mega-money British battle between former world heavyweight champion David Haye and up and comer Tyson Fury is on the ropes as negotiations have stalled this week.

Haye, 32, has claimed that he has bent over backwards to accommodate Fury’s demands, even handing him and even split of the cash – although the ‘Hayemaker’ is now doubtful that the clash will ever take place.

The Londoner vented his frustrations on his Twitter account today just over a week after Fury stated that the eagerly-anticipated fight was 99% on as he watched James DeGale fight at Glow, Bluewater live on Channel 5.

The battle is now in considerable trouble after Haye made his feelings public, with the majority of boxing fans already salivating at the prospect of the two contenders sharing a ring in Manchester in the autumn.

24 year-old Fury, who is currently unbeaten in 21 fights, is yet to comment on the situation after previously confirming his desire to defeat Haye and both Klitschko’s before reigning as the best heavyweight on the planet.
